“Concussion” is already shaping up to be one of the most critically acclaimed films of 2015 and The Shadow League was front and center at a press conference at the posh Crosby Hotel in New York City a while back. On hand were stars Will Smith, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and David Morse, as well as producers Elizabeth Cantillon, Giannina Scott as well as writer/director Peter Landesman.
My camera was rolling and the quotes just started flying. Will Smith did most of the speaking however his fire, humor and intelligence were matched by none other than Dr. Bennet Omalu himself-the pathologist who discovered CTE and made it his mission to get the National Football League to admit a problem was occurring. Check out some of this insightful, funny and thoughtful commentary from the films principal creative minds.
